 The two most important days in your life are the day your were born and the day 🌷you find out why. 🌷 

Well hello lovely people 🌻 I finally have my act together and I'm sitting down to blog. We are having a typical winter's day, complete with rain, wind and the cold. lol. That kind of weather always makes you want to stay inside and chill. Last night I briefly attended my niece's 40th Birthday party until it was time to drive her children to their overnight sleepover house. It was such a lovely night and I'm so glad to have such a beautiful person as my niece. πŸ’– 

I had double the pleasure yesterday. I got to look after Lisa's children while she went to work. So one of the amazing things I got to do was to sit outside in the sunshine, on a pallet of brick pavers, to teach a little Ninja Turtle how to crochet.πŸ˜‚

In my spare time, I've enjoyed my knitting and crochet work. Most of the things I make are for the markets but just quietly....(because I know Chris is reading my blog πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚)..I have been working on show entries as well. I won't show those things though. lol 

The pink baby set below was a commissioned item. A friend wanted a gift for a baby girl and I really loved this project. The yarn had a splash of gold shine in it, though it didn't make the item rough. You will notice that often, any yarn with the gold or silver shiny yarn entwined makes the whole project a bit scratchy.

My poncho collection for the markets is growing and a never ending flow of colour I use really makes my stock pop out. I'm determined to really to promote bright colours in my work and how exciting to see the children in my little town walking around in amazing colours. 😊


Another item that seems to sell extremely well are ear warmers and headbands. I have so many left over half balls of yarn sitting in my sewing shed it's not funny, and I've decided that they're going to turn into something. The striped headband below is one such item made using a half ball of yarn. Whoever buys it will be so happy with how soft it is and how pretty it looks.

The green project is a pair of ear warmers. This is one of my favourite shades of green and it is a chunky yarn. Very soft, very nice. There are endless free patterns for ear warmers on the internet.

Of course, I am always knitting or crocheting little booties because they sell very fast.
I've had some time to spend in the garden as well. I'm getting the yard more organized since getting the circular garden edging placed right. We had to get our over grown Bottle brush tree pruned right back because we had let it get right out of control. Soon we would've been getting a knock on the front door from the power authority to say.....get those branches away from the power lines. lol

Let me just contain my excitement about the bird bath I purchased on the local Buy and Sell facebook page. I took a bit of time to decide where to place it, because, believe me, it is heavy. Let me know what you think of where I placed it. I wanted it near the native trees that the birds live in.

i will leave you all for now and thank you for dropping by to see me. I love the comments you leave and I value your friendships. Have a beautiful day.

Ciao, Anita.

I see you have been so busy creating such amazing projects. I can't think of better time spent then teaching a Ninja Turtle how to crochet. Stay safe Anita.
